Easy Steps To Get Your UK Student Visa Explained By Rudraksh Immigration Consultants!

The UK is traditionally one of the most popular destinations for aspiring students to pursue higher education. Our history with the UK and the tradition of migrating there for acquiring education has been rather long. The reasons for this are plenty. Rudraksh Immigration Group in Mohali thinks that this trend is likely to continue even after the pandemic. Primary reasons for that are world-class education institutes, English as a medium of instruction, proximity to India (compared to the US, Canada, Australia or New Zealand), etc. Rudraksh Group has been at the forefront of this migration process for over 27 years now. Here are some key steps to getting a student visa for the UK smoothly.

  • Eligibility – To apply for a visa, you must first have an unconditional acceptance letter from a recognized educational institute in the UK. Rudraksh Immigration will guide you on how to apply and which institutions/universities are the best in any given field. After submitting the relevant documents there, the decision to accept you as a student shall be informed to you via Email with sufficient time remaining before the start of the semester.
  • Proof of Funds – You must be able to establish that you have enough financial strength to sustain your living in the UK. There are various ways to prove it and also depends on your situation. There should be money for the first year in your bank account which should satisfy the criteria of around £1,100 a month if you will be staying outside London and around £1,350 a month if you wish to study in London. Also, you could mention if you have any sponsorships or scholarships.
  • English Language Proficiency – Your English language proficiency is also a relevant criterion for acquiring a UK visa. Rudraksh Consultants advise that one can either prove that his/her educational background had English as the medium of instruction or take the IELTS or TOEFL tests in India itself to showcase your language skills. These exams cover the Reading, Listening, Writing and Speaking modules.
  •  Documents Needed – The number of documents required for the visa application can be overwhelming to some. But Rudraksh Immigration Consultants Mohali breaks down the documents in an easy-to-understand fashion. Essentially, what it boils down to is the fact that you have your acceptance letter from the educational institute, proof of sufficient balance in your bank account, written consent of parents/guardian if you are under 18 years of age, written approval of sponsorships (if you have any), a valid passport, identification documents, ATAS Certificate (required for some specific courses), Visa fee, biometric information (fingerprints and photographs), etc.
  • After Visa Application – The application and submission of documents is an online process. However, the decision for approval could take some time in certain situations. Rudraksh Immigration Mohali prepares you for the Visa interview (if needed). There could be delays in the decision if you have a criminal history, your supporting documents are needed to be verified or if you want to make some changes to the details that you have submitted.
